    ‘The Stick Man’ by Julia Donaldson is excellent for forest school as the children then go and make their own stick man using clove hitch knot and a simple lashing technique. They love it!

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.
